Partnering with your Parish

Nowadays it’s a fact that you need a good, hard-working website to talk to your parish. But it’s also a fact that you shouldn’t have to put in the hours of effort and work necessary to get it going and keep it maintained. We’re here to take away the burden and help you all the way.

Parish Websites is part of Acton BV – a leading internet consultancy based in Ennis, County Clare. The company has spent many years developing a robust and flexible web site framework that is ideal for the communication needs of your parish. The result is your community enjoys its own online home that’s fully adaptable to suit your needs – and which can also grow as your requirements change. Most importantly, we take the hard work out of running your own website, saving you time, effort and money.

It’s about communicating with your community with ease and efficiency… and it’s about freeing you up so you can be where you’re needed most.

How Does it Work?

The great news is – it’s simplicity itself for you…

  • It all starts with listening. Acton BV Michael Byrne will spend time with you, to understand the needs of your parish and its visitors.
  • We’ll design a website that is easy to find, attractive to visit and simple to use. If you’re a smaller parish, our basic framework is ideal… Or you can choose from a range of add-on features.
  • We’re flexible. If you have an existing website, we will transfer the content over to your new one and show you how to edit the content and add images as you need to. And if you want to add on later – that’s no problem either.
  • We give you training. We understand that different volunteers and parish members will have different levels of computer skills – so we will give you a step-by-step manual together with hands-on training so you can work with your website without hassle. We’ll give you the time you need – and this will continue even after your site goes live.
  • We make it easy. If you can produce a parish newsletter you can quite easily maintain one of our websites.
  • We understand that time is of the essence, so will make sure your site is ready within four to six weeks.

All Parish Websites are built to be easy to use and to maintain – and we’ll suggest only features that we know and have proven to be used by communities like yours.

Acton BV’s Michael Byrne, based in Ennis, and Bernard Hennessy of Naas, County Kildare, have years of experience in bringing parish websites to life.

You can benefit from this knowledge. Together with their team, they’re ready to listen to your needs and translate them into a hard-working site that will unite your parishioners.
